Data protection provisions about the use of PayPal as a payment processor
On this website, the controller has integrated components of PayPal. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. PayPal is also able to process virtual payments through credit cards when a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e-mail address, which is why there are no classic account numbers. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also assumes trustee capacities and offers buyer protection services.
The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.
If the data subject chooses "PayPal" as the payment option in the online shop during the ordering process, we automatically transmit the data of the data subject to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.
The personal data transmitted to PayPal usually involves first name, last name, address, e-mail address, IP address, telephone number, cellphone number, or other data necessary for payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data as is connected to the respective order.
The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to PayPal in particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller may be transmitted to credit agencies by PayPal. This transmission is intended for identity and credit checks.
PayPal will pass on personal data to affiliates and service providers or subcontractors, if it is necessary to fulfill contractual obligations or for the data to be processed.
At any time, the data subject has the possibility to revoke consent from PayPal for the handling of personal data. A revocation does not have any effect on personal data which must necessarily be processed, used, or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.
